The 17th FLOW-3D European Users Conference will be held at the Avenida Palace Hotel, June 5-7, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain. The annual Users Conference is an exciting event where users advance their simulation skills through interactions with Flow Science staff engineers, collaboration with other users, exploring new modeling approaches, and learning about the latest software developments. Join the community of FLOW-3D users from all over Europe for this annual event.
Call for Abstracts
The call for abstracts is now open. Share your experiences, present your success stories and obtain valuable feedback from your fellow FLOW-3D users and Flow Science engineers. The deadline to submit an abstract is Friday, April 21. Abstracts should include a title, author and a 150 word description. Abstract notifications will be sent out on Friday, April 28. Please email your abstract to email@example.com. All presentations will be distributed to the conference attendees and on our website after the conference.
The conference registration fee of 100 € includes the two-day conference, opening reception, conference dinner, lunch each day and the 1/2 day numerics training on June 5. Early-bird registration ends Friday, April 21.
Flow Science will also offer a training devoted to optimizing simulation time and accuracy using the various numerical options that are available in our software packages. This training is included with the conference registration and will cover what the best numerical options would be for a wide range of applications. Some of the topics will include:
- Selecting the appropriate pressure solver for your simulation
- When to use implicit and explicit solvers
- The differences between different Volume-of-Fluid approaches
- Time-step and convergence controls
- Choosing the right momentum advection
At the end of the training, you will be able to understand what is the function of the different options available in the numerics tab, intelligently choose between them for optimal runtime and accuracy and handle numerically challenging situations!
This course will be taught by Dr. Michael Barkhudarov, VP of R&D and Dr. Ioannis Karampelas, CFD Technical Support Engineer.
